Episode 88: An Ode to Our Big Friendships
March 10, 2021
It’s no secret that friendships are a big part of our lives - from our close high school group chats, to our long distance friends we truly miss, to the friends who are always down to do absolutely nothing together, our friendships mean just as much to us as our relationships!
But does the amount of effort, vulnerability, and transparency we bring to friendships match the level of internal appreciation we have? Are we as willing to work on our Big Friendships as we are on our relationships? Today we delve into our thoughts on friendship insecurities, improving intimacy with friends, and our personal friendship learnings.
This episode is inspired by and dedicated to “Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close” by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman. Not only is their book a phenomenal deep dive into the importance of working on your meaningful friendships, Aminatou and Ann host a wonderful podcast called “Call Your Girlfriend” that delves deeper into the nuances of friendship.
